I just installed Toast on my iMac because I wanted to be able to burn my iMovies in HD. I was told Toast was the way to go.

The problem is, I can't just drag and drop my iMovie into Toast. It says I have to do something to it (i can't remember what it said now!) in order to get it into Toast.

Also, a movie I had downloaded won't drag and drop either. It's AVI format and worked in iDVD to burn it.

Am I missing something? The Toast manual tells me I should just be able to drag and drop my iMovies. I have iMovies08.

Thanks for any info!!

What version of Toast are you using? Also, Make sure you have the right format chosen.

Version 9 Titanium

I tried all the formats and it won't even let me drag and drop the imovie.

I have not tried an iMovie project in ages but AVI files I drop into toast all the time on the DVD tab. It will convert the AVI into a DVD movie then burn the DVD. Works here every time. Will check into an iMovie creation and get back to you.

I hope the AVI's are not downloaded copyrighted movies as we do not allow discussion of such here at Mac Forums.

I'm using version 7, but I imagine 9 should be similar. On mine, to the left hand side there is a sidebar with the options for "format" or "media". Under "format", there are a few options. You probably want to have it set to "DVD Video" (or something similar, I've never used Toast 9). Sorry, I cant help more, hope it works for you.
